15th International Conference on the Design of Reliable Communication Networks (DRCN 2019)

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 15th edition of DRCN the "International Conference on the Design of Reliable Communication Networks" which will take place March 19th to 21st, 2019 in Coimbra, Portugal. 

Since its creation in 1998, DRCN has become over the years a well-established forum for scientists from both industry and academy who have interest in reliability and availability of telecommunication networks, or other resilience-related topics. The aim of the conference is to bring together people from various disciplines, ranging from engineering of survivable equipment and network technologies to network management and monitoring, through methods and models for survivable and robust network design. The DRCN 2019 conference is technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE Communications Society.

DRCN 2019 will offer timely keynotes by Francisco Fontes from Altice Labs (5G challenges and contributions regarding reliability), by Massimo Tornatore, Politecnico di Milano & University of California, Davis (Reliable Optical Metro Networks for 5G communications), by Yvan Pointurier from Nokia Bell Labs (Reliable networking in the Secure Networking for a Data Center Cloud in Europe (SENDATE) project), and the tutorial "Driving towards a reliable edge"  by Xavi Masip (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya).
